September In The Rain



Running out of month, so here is the last of the September Songs. In this one, Spring is here but the love affair is still remembered.  From 1937 the music was written by Harry Warren, the lyrics by Al Dubin. Winners of Oscars and Tonys, this team was responsible for hundreds of songs and are in the Songwriters Hall of Fame. It was introduced by James Melton in the film Melody for Two in which Donald O'Connor made his film debut at age 12 with his two brothers, Jack and Billy, doing a specialty routine. The song has gone on to become a standard, recorded by many artists since.
September In The Rain

The leaves of brown came tumbling down
Remember in september in the rain
The sun went out just like a dying amber
That september in the rain

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play our sweet refrain
Though spring is here to me its still september
That september in the rain

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play our sweet refrain
Though spring is here to me it is still september
That september in the rain

That september that brought the pain
That september in the rain
